Strategic Network for Sensor Research at Cambridge University

Studying at Cambridge


Arduino workshop

Together with the Sensor CDT CamBridgeSens organised a workshop for academics and researchers to learn how to use Arduino microcontrollers in research labs

A team of first and second year Sensor CDT students ran an extremely enjoyable and successful one day workshop on how to use Arduino micro controllers for research applications.

The workshop started with the basics of reading analog sensor data and finished with a control loop to keep the speed of a motor constant under different loads. The attendees explored the use of interrupts on the Arduino microcontroller and programmed small and cheaper microntriller as wel to enable them to build bespoke test, measurement and control equipment for their research labs.

The workshop was part of the Cambridge Open Technology Week 2016.
